Police said on August 7 they believed they'd found the bodies of McLeod, 19, and Schmegelsky, whose 19th birthday was August 4, ending a lengthy cross-Canada search that made headlines around the world.

Two firearms were also found near the area and police are analysing whether these weapons were connected to the homicides in B.C.

While the RCMP have now found the bodies of the suspects, B.C. RCMP assistant commissioner Kevin Hackett previously told the Canadian Press the investigation is not over, as police never discovered a motive for the killings.

Schmegelsky and McLeod, both 19 from Vancouver Island, are suspected of shooting dead Australian tourist Lucas Fowler, 23, and his North Carolina girlfriend, Chynna Deese, 24, after the couple's van broke down on a British Columbia highway on July 14.

The search for McLeod, 19, and Schmegelsky, who would have turned 19 on August 4, covered 11,000 square kilometres in northern Manitoba alone - an area larger than Jamaica.

However, police say in a statement that there were strong indications that the teens had been alive for a few days since they were last seen in July and during the extensive search efforts in the Gillam area.

Four days later on another BC highway Schmegelsky and McLeod were accused of murdering 64-year-old botanist Leonard Dyck, stealing his Toyota RAV4 and driving it 3000km east across northern Canada until dumping and burning the vehicle outside the small town of Gillam, Manitoba.
